Job Advertising Deadlines

Use these deadlines when planning to place your job notices in the appropriate ICMA newsletter.

ICMA has two electronic newsletters for distributing job notices:

  • Leadership Matters (formerly the ICMA Newsletter)
  • Leadership Matters, Non-member Highlights (formerly the Job Opportunities Bulletin and Local Government Matters)

Leadership Matters


Friday before

Over 11,000 ICMA Members

Leadership Matters, Non-member Highlights


Friday before



  • Both newsletters are weekly, and distributed every Tuesday. To ensure your job ad is included in the Tuesday newsletter you want to start your ad, post it in our system by the Friday before. It's that easy!
  • By default, ALL ads are included in Leadership Matters for no additional charge. 
  • In ad rates, price is per newsletter not per issue of the newsletter. So your ad will appear in every issue of the newsletter you select for the ads' live duration (as each newsletter is weekly, that's typically eight issues). 
  • Subscribers to the newsletters do not overlap - ICMA members do not also get the non-member version. So a job ad sent to both newsletters would reach almost 45,000 local government professionals.
  • CAO and Deputy CAO ads appear in both newsletters, inclusive of the price.
